The struggles I face
from day to day

pain, and anxiety too.

But most of all I
struggle from not having you.

Time will heal.
So they say.

So I watch the clock
as time fades away.

I do work to help people with their losses. You CAN make a life after loss. Get some help - a group with same experiences. And get that education! Keep your dreams alive. There are many on the net who can inspire you.

I cannot imagine how you would have felt at such a young age not only facing mortality and the loss of one parent, but then a loss of the other. It must have been terrifying for you and still must be so lonely. I can only hope that you had some wonderful family around you to pick you up and hold you. Good on you for staying so strong and following your dreams. Imagine the stories you will be able to tell your parents when you get to see them again.
